Short documentary about the two main figures in the Chicago Conspiracy trial - Abbie Hoffman and the presiding judge, Julius Hoffman. This piece compares the Hoffmans' personalities and argues that they had a mutual fascination with one another.
Julius was my great uncle. There was a 'rift' with that part of the family, so I only met him once either just before or early in the trial. I was in high school. I specifically remember him referring to Abbie as "Cousin Abbie" several times during that conversation.

Abbie Hoffman was truly one of the heroes of my youth, along with Bobby Seale, and the Berrigan brothers. REVOLUTION!
